Christmas baking is full swing here! The tree is up, the decorations are up, some gifts are already wrapped and the only thing that’s missing is the Christmas music. I don’t really do the music until right before the holiday. It’s probably because I used to work at restaurants a they start playing Christmas music the day after Halloween. I got so sick of it that I can only take about 2 days a year.

But decorations, baking and gifts….bring it on!

Hubby says that it’s like winter wonderland in here and the little man is running around rearranging the ornaments and singing Jingle Bells! Smells like cookies and muffins in here…heaven!

With all this baking, I have my best friend by my side. I’m talking about the PAM Cooking Spray. PAM and I have been together for over 10 years, pretty much since I’ve started baking, and I always have a couple of them next to my oven.

PAM has always been a great tool at baking because it works best to protect your baking creations from sticking to the pan but they’ve made some improvements (like it needed it). The improved formula of Original, Butter and Baking PAM spray have zero calories and it leaves 99% less residue that a bargain brand. I love that because, as you can see, my muffin pans are used a lot and and need good protection from baked-on residue.

I actually just now tried the baking one and I’m in love! I used to just use the original one and I’ve been missing out. My favorite part is the vanilla scent!

Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Muffins

Muffins…we love muffins around here! Now that it’s holly-jolly Christmas time, it’s all about cranberries, gingerbread and peppermint! I am bringing on the cranberries!!

These muffins were AMAZING! So soft inside and the best crunchy top I’ve made yet! The flavor combination is perfect. Cranberries and white chocolate are just so good together!
